Actual Knitting Content!!!

A Liesl for my mother, in King Cole Riot, a mohair/acrylic blend, on large needles.

We have decided, after trying various options, that a stylish brooch under the bust is the best way to close the fronts. It is long enough that even a mid-torso closure doesn’t shorten it unflatteringly. (Mum, I don’t know if that reads well – but you and I both know you look pretty darn good!)

  1. Wow, it looks fantastic, i’ve never heard of that yarn, must look it up! I love it with the extra length.
    Despite putting buttonholes in my Liesl (badly) I also use a brooch to close it, just under the bust.

  2. wonderful. I’ve always meant to make that pattern. I think it looks delicate and soft. Agree, a brooch closure is great.
